1. Background information and instructions for reading
the statistics
• Seeking treatment independently means that the customer has travelled abroad with the purpose of
receiving treatment and they do not have prior authorisation pursuant to EU regulations.
• In 2022, Kela reimbursed the costs of seeking treatment independently if the treatment had been
provided in an EU or EEA country or in Switzerland. Treatment costs were reimbursed in the same
manner as treatment given in Finnish private health care. As of the beginning of 2023, Kela pays
reimbursements for costs incurred in an EU or EEA country, Switzerland or the United Kingdom up to
the amount that equivalent treatment would have cost in the customer’s own wellbeing services county
in Finland.
• The statistics are compiled according to the resolution date. Reimbursement must be sought within half
a year of paying the costs. Therefore, the treatment relating to the statistics may have been given the
year before. The statistics are also affected by the application processing status of Kela.
• The statistics only present the cases where customers have applied for reimbursement for care provided.
• More information at Kela website: Seeking treatment abroad
